    Hi Patrick,

    I was wondering where you get your information for your pitching charts. Is this something you compile on your own as you watch the game?

    Very interesting stuff. The thing that stood out to me was not the velocities at all – Darvish seems to mix up when he throws different pitches very well. While he threw his fastball pretty consistently the entire game, he mixed up when he threw his offspeed stuff fairly well it appears.

    That’s interesting that he throws the shuuto at fastball velocity.
